    Noel Neill

    Superman actress Noel Neill turns 95 today. No major health problems, except for breaking her hip in 2010. Someone to keep an eye on, I think.

    Robert Hardy

    If Super bloody Gran can get a thread when no one remembers if shes even alive, then surely one of our greatest living thespians can? Robert Hardy is the dean of British character actors. Best known for a long stint opposite Peter Davison (whom he mentored) in All Creatures Great and Small as vet Siegfried Farnon, he has also appeared in everything under the sun, except, peculiarly, Doctor Who. You might also recognise him from the Harry Potter films (Cornelius Fudge), and about nearly everything the BBC does with Churchill in it. He is now 90, is the type of person the Deathlist likes (think George Cole and Peter Sallis), and more pertinently, has began to sell off his beloved collection of antiques and historical items, which isn't something he'd do lightly. So whilst the Mail claims he is in good shape for 90, there's something causing him to downsize his most prized possessions. Besides, if Nicholas Parsons can get his own thread despite being the Healthiest Man in Britain...

    Johan Cruijff

    According to Dutch news site nu.nl Johan Cruijff (68) is in poor health and has been checked in hospital, a spokesperson confirmed. She denied rumours in the Spanish press that he suffers from lung cancer. ETA: The Sun reports the cancer, of course.

    Since less and less people are believing in god I wanted to ask the question do you believe God is real or not

    Lone Rhinoceros

    Being that the entire species (all variations) may well be extinct in our children's' lifetimes, I figured we could count them down, 1 by 1. We lost two bloody black rhinos just this month. Denver Zoo officials are mourning the loss of a 21-year-old black rhinoceros after the animals health caused the zoo to euthanize him. Zoo officials say since 2014 they have tried 20 different procedures and therapies to alleviate the critically endangered animals foot problems, including customized boots. Mshindi was born at the zoo in 1993. His name means warrior or champion in Swahili. The rhino was taught to hold a paint brush in his mouth and create paintings that were then sold to raise money for rhino conservation.

    Barry Norman

    I see Barry Norman's live show at the Plaza in Stockport has been cancelled for the second time this year due to his being hospitalised, I had a ticket to see him in February but was cancelled on account of the flu. Much as I wish for him to make a full recovery he could be worth keeping an eye on, is 82 now

    Ronnie Corbett

    Just saw Cat O`Falks post about there not being a thread for Ronnie Corbett which I found surprising given his age notability and high profile collpase. Anyway he is of course best known for his role in the Two Ronnies and the sitcom Sorry! and is considered widely to be a "national treasure".He collapsed in a restaurant 3 years ago.He also spent several days in hospital last year after suffering chest pains.He also vehemently dismissed rumours of his retirement last year but I haven`t seen him on TV since Rolf Harris was convicted.I would be surprised if he went this year or next but he is nearly 85 and not been in the rudest of health so certainly one to keep on the radar. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2541730/It-goodnight-getting-new-knee-Ronnie-Corbett-came-close-death-collapsed-having-joint-replacement.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/10700961/Ronnie-Corbett-suffers-chest-pains.html http://www.croydonadvertiser.co.uk/Ronnie-Corbett-m-fed-retirement-rumours/story-20878060-detail/story.html

    Carol Channing

    The Tony and Golden Globe Winner and Oscar nominated actress singer and subject of regular impersonations by Ryan Stiles, Carol Channing turns 95 next January . She is best known for appearing in Hello Dolly!which earned her a Tony award. She also won a golden globe award and on Oscar nomination for Thoroughly Modern Millie.She is also a dancer and a stand up comedienne. So a pretty much all round performer who fits into several different threads. I definitely think she is a name that sounds very Death List worthy. Sir Creep also reckons she is on her way out so if he is right this thread gives him the perfect space to be as smug as he wishes to be Looks and sounds weak in this commercial last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mANJ9T_Bsaw Channing in action as a very creepy Queen in Alice in Wonderland.

    Charlotte Rae

    Charlotte Rae, known for her role as Edna Garret in "Diff'rent Strokes" and spin-off "The Facts Of Life", is 89 years old. Here is a little about her medical history from Wikipedia: Is she a possible candidate for 2016? I'll definitely add her to my Personal Deathlist.

    Douglas Slocombe

    I thought it was about time the Cinematographer Douglas Slocombe had his own thread. He turns 103 next February is virtually blind and looks very frail indeed. He was also a photojournalist and covered the beginning of WW2 before working on many films such as the First three Indiana Jones films ,Julia ,The Italian job ,The Great Gatsby and Jesus Christ Superstar amongst many others. He won 3 BAFTAS and was nominated for 3 Oscars. Given the high profile of his movies and his acclaim from BAFTA I would be astounded if his eventual demise was not covered by all the major news sites/Papers in Britain .Gil Taylor another famous cinematographer received a good amount of attention when he died and I think Slocombe would be the same .I think he is definitely a must have for next years list if he makes it that far. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-28983004 :An interview with the BBC last September. http://www.bscine.com/2013/douglas-slocombe-bsc-celebrates-his-100th-birthday/ :100th Birthday report. http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2009/dec/13/douglas-slocombe-tribute-philip-french :Guardian article on him being honoured by BAFTA. http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/72823000/jpg/_72823007_slocombe-2011.jpg :Picture from 2011.

    Greville Janner

    Lord Janner turned 87 yesterday and is said to be receiving 24 hour care for Alzheimer`s disease which he was diagnosed with six years ago. His condition is said to be rapidly worsening however some have said his lawyers are exaggerating the severity of his condition to avoid him standing trial over serious historical offences. When the trial goes ahead albeit in his absence the speculation of his health will no doubt be clarified further. Certainly a serious contender for next year I think. Had anyone heard of him before the child abuse allegations though?

    Brian Sewell

    The controversial art critic Brian Sewell is now 84 and was diagnosed with metastatic head and neck cancer over a year ago which is now in his stomach and lungs.He was also being treated for a heart condition and has previously said he wants to kill himself.Surely a must have for next year if he is still breathing ? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2657993/How-cancer-left-Picasso-ear-Art-critic-Brian-Sewell-ebullient-surgery-firing-withering-barbs-enemies.html http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2974199/Cancer-stricken-art-critic-Brian-Sewell-stealing-paintings-trusted-friends-culprits.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/fameandfortune/11485082/Brian-Sewell-My-biggest-fear-is-mansion-tax.html http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/style/homes_and_gardens/My_Place/article1536246.ece http://www.mailonsunday.co.uk/home/event/article-2970559/Brian-Sewell-facing-death-year-lucky-alive.html http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2362630/How-Im-going-commit-suicide-Brian-Sewell-A-shockingly-honest-beautifully-elegant-confession-Britains-celebrated-art-critic.html

    Burt Reynolds

    This is the place to discuss Burt Reynolds the 79 year old actor who has suffered from back trouble and also has had major heart surgery and pneumonia over the last few years but looks like he is far more seriously ill than he is publicly disclosing in recent pictures. http://www.closerweekly.com/posts/burt-reynolds-is-determined-to-stay-strong-as-he-struggles-with-illness-59198 Certainly one of ours for next year?
